Honors Interdisciplinary Symposia

Sustainability & Our World
HONR 1027/1037

Just as the concept of sustainability itself brings together scholarship and practice, global and local perspectives, and disciplines from across the natural and social sciences as well as from engineering and medicine, so, too, does this Honors course, whose goal is to develop the knowledge base from which students can become more informed and engaged citizens of the United States and the world.

The course consists of 75-minute seminar/discussions two days a week.

Summary of Student Credit:

  • Fall: 3 credits of Social Science Core
  • Spring: 3 credits of Social Science Core

Faculty Comments:

"This is a great course for an Honors freshman, especially if you are someone who wants to become a better steward of our natural environment."

"In various ways, environmentalists and advocates of sustainability seek to give the natural world a stronger voice in human affairs. This Honors course will help develop the knowledge and insights that will help to achieve that goal."
